“The necessity of effective international control of atomic energy”

TLS signed “A. Einstein,” one page, 7 x 10, Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists letterhead, October 9, 1947. Letter to chemist Dr. Donald Kundiger of San Francisco. In part: “I have received with pleasure your generous answer to my letter enclosing the recent Statement of the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists with it urgent appeal for the necessity of effective international control of atomic energy. Thank you for your continued help in our campaign to arouse the American people to an understanding of the present very serious situation. An article by Cord Meyer in a recent issue of the Atlantic Monthly develops further some of the topics touched upon in our Statement. If you have not seen Mr. Meyer’s article, I think you will be interested in the enclosed reprint.” Matted and framed with a portrait and plaque to an overall size of 25 x 21.5. In fine condition.

Einstein personally established the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists to warn the public of the dangers associated with the development of nuclear weapons, promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and ultimately work towards world peace. In 1948 Einstein compiled an ‘Atomic Science Reading List,’ which consisted of six publications that approached atomic energy from many angles, from the scientific with the monthly Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to the societal with John Hersey’s Hiroshima. Another on this list was Peace or Anarchy by Cord Meyer, which reviewed the complex problems connected with peace and security. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
